Gandhi and Associates


This course, conducted in the library of the Gandhi
Memorial Center in Bethesda, MD, will explore the
association of Mohandas K. Gandhi with Leo Tolstoy,
regarded as one of the greatest authors of all time;
Rabindranath Tagore, a Bengali polymath, poet, musician
and artist from the Indian subcontinent; Maria
Montessori, an Italian educator, physician and scientist;
and Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, a Pashtun independence
activist and spiritual leader nicknamed “Frontier Gandhi.”

The mutual inspiration and admiration of these individuals
for Gandhi shaped the “Mahatma” in ways that
influenced his life’s dedication to truth, nonviolence and
selfless service. Participants will be introduced to the
many influences in the life of Gandhi that reflect upon
these four figures.
